Hello everyone!

We are excited to share with you all that the Quality Assurance team has been revamped! This has taken a few months in the works and we're super excited to share this with you all! Read on to see what the revamp entails! 👀

👷‍♂️ New Responsibilities!

One of the reasons for us revamping the Quality Assurance team was to combine responsibilities and add new responsibilities to the team! Before the revamp, the Quality Assurance team had to test Marketplace maps and games. With the revamp, we're adding the extra responsibilities:
  • Bugs - I'm sure you agree that finding bugs on the server is always a pain. They're always ruining your experience and it sucks! Now, the QA team will all be trained to report bugs internally as well as to our development team to ensure that these bugs are being made known to everyone.
  • Server QA - One of our major goals in 2022 is to provide our wonderful players with the best experience possible - and this can only be achieved if our updates take a bit longer to develop, and are QA'd a lot! This will be done by our new Quality Assurance team.
What this means is that the Quality Assurance team makes sure you, the player, are having the best experience possible on every platform. The Quality Assurance team will test out Marketplace maps and games, but they will also test out new games and updates on our networks, and they will forward reported bugs to our developers.

Our current Market QA team has done wonderfully with reporting bugs and forwarding them to our Behaviour and Redstone team for Marketplace, and their knowledge will be extremely useful for us as a server to utilise too!

As a part of the QA team, you will have the chance to play some awesome maps, like 80s High School!

To divide workload and knowledge, @Joëlle and @Marieke2001 have both been assigned to lead the Quality Assurance team. Joëlle will be responsible for the Marketplace side of Quality Assurance, while Marieke will lead the Bugs team together with Server Quality Assurance. If you have any questions about the role and what it entails, feel free to send either of them a conversation here on the forums!

🧪 Applications!

Due to these rather big changes to the Quality Assurance team, the application process had to be reviewed and adjusted where needed. Application threads have been updated to fit better into the new team. We have listed the changes that happened in the Quality Assurance application thread.

✨ Quality Assurance Rank!

While the Quality Assurance revamp was being discussed, the decision was made to create a rank for the team! Previously there was no way to recognize a Quality Assurance team member in-game, so the rank should give more clarity and visibility about this important role!



Quality: Assured ✅

Hello CubeCrafters!

After months of testing & perfecting our regions system, we're ready to take things a whole step further and bring a smoother CubeCraft experience to even more players! - On Java & Bedrock


🌏 CubeCraft is now available in Asia!

We've left a few hints to this over the past week - some of you may have noticed reduced ping to our servers, a different MOTD and a totally intentional region appearing on the region selector, cough cough.

We've been running tests on Asia games all week, and we're now happy to officially launch the region! This wouldn't have been possible without our new Production Operations team's hard work.


🗺️ How can I connect to the Asia region??

Just like we said when we released our North American regions - when you connect to CubeCraft, you automatically join the region closest to you with the best ping! For example, if you're in Germany, you'd go to our EU region, but if you're in Malaysia, you will go to our Asia region - basically, what has a better connection to you. When joining a game, we also try our best to put you on a server that's in your region.

Remember, at quiet times for some regions, we might start sending you to games in regions where there are more players, so don't be surprised if you're sometimes sent to European or North American games!


:faceplant: ben what have you done to the lobby selector

We've made some slight changes to the lobby selector to make it more clear what the regions are:

Thanks for reading; we hope you have an awesome time on our brand new AS region! Stay safe.

Hello CubeCrafters,

We're very excited to unveil our brand new hub on both Java & Bedrock, we've been working on this project for a long time now and we're finally ready to release it for all of you to see! 🎉

It features all new 1.12 blocks from our update in Summer as well as more details with models for Bedrock.

Our new CubeCraft hub

🎈 Main Area

We've overhauled the main game area with some changes that will make your CubeCraft experience better:

Starting with the removal of portals. We understand that many people love the portals however after our rapid game releases they became incredibly difficult to work with in the lobby due to their scale and inability to curve. Our new design allows us to move NPCs closer and curve them around the player for a cleaner design.


main_area.png

Main Area
Banners have all been remastered and put a larger focus on the colour of that gamemode to make each game look visually unique from spawn. Additionally we've created new models for the menu items in spawn; VIP levels, gifting & content packs to represent more of what they are & they also have a cool spin - take a look!

Some remastered banners

👟 New Lobby Parkour & Rewards

We know our community love lobby parkour, so we've got three new ones for you and due to popular demand Bedrock comes with two rewards to unlock for completing the parkour! Completion of 'Rooftop' rewards you with a win effect called Cityscape, and completion of 'Tower' grants you a prefix.


parkour.png

Our three new lobby parkours - what's your fastest time?

🛒 Lobby Shops

We had shops built into the main city square early on and we thought it'd be cool if they were functional instead of leaving them empty & boring, so we've added marketplace content to them and in the future we will have game loot stores as well! - What stores would you like to see in the future? 👀


skin_shop.png

Marketplace Clothes Shop

🚂 Train

During our development process we always thought it'd be fun to explore the lobby via transportation like a real city, so we created a fully functioning train, the coolest way to explore the new hub!

The train will take you around our lobby at various stations and is ridable by up to 30 people at the same time, it has cool jingles, effects & animations.


🎈 Hot Air Balloon

Alongside the train we've also got a hot air balloon for getting to those hard to reach places around the lobby, it flies through the sky and seats 4 people at once, you and others in the balloon can vote on locations to visit before take off!


🌅 Day/Night Cycle

We've added a day/night cycle to the lobby and it will always keep moving forward, to compensate for the darkness of night time we've also added cool lamp post models on Bedrock that emit light.


🎫 Java Changes

We've also made some changes to Java that don't apply to Bedrock such as lobby games; we've increased the amount of hidden chest locations and relic markers for relic hunting.

The compass has also made a return to Java with this new lobby, so you can select games without even moving to the NPCs!

Similar to Bedrock, Java is being limited by the art backdrops behind them as they cannot be curved, we also discovered they contribute massively to frame rate issues in the lobby, since we've removed these we've seen large FPS boosts to players.

Furthermore thanks to @itsmochhi and @gumoholic - we now have brand-new skins for all the NPCs in the main area! Among Slimes was not included in this list because it uses a skin from in the game, this may change in the future.

Tier 1 pumpkins only require you to break blocks, tier 2 pumpkins require you to break and place blocks, and tier 3 pumpkins require you to break and place an assorted palette of blocks!

You will also be able to join Ender through the spooky Ender NPC! To the right of all of this, you can see our amazing Horror Bundle 👀


🧨 Horror Bundle has risen on Bedrock!

In case you weren't scared enough, you can try and scare your fellow CubeCrafters in your games too! - Purchasing the Horror Bundle will grant you some amazing animated loot that will be sure to send shivers down their spine! Take a look!:

You may be wondering why Nightmare hasn't returned from last year for Java - this is because we do not want to encourage huge amounts of win farming based on seasonal maps. Going forwards with seasonal maps, this will not occur again, but this change needed to be done to encourage a healthy community! Thanks for understanding. 😄
